Roleplaying in the Victorian Steam Age

Its 1873 and the Victorian Age is in full swing. Great advances in technology have been made via Aether and Britain is the envy of the world!

This is the cunning of Amber style movers and shakers meets Victorian Steampunk!

Heroes from the Dark Age, tattooed by the Druids so that their souls will return through time to fight for their Gods and Goddesses are reborn in the Age of Victoria. But something has changed from the history as we know it. Some twenty years ago a new wonderful technology called Aether was discovered that enabled steam engines to run further and faster by helping to re-cool the steam and recycling the water. Steam engines no longer needed to stop many times on a journey and could keep going all the way from London to Scotland on a single tank.

The various betrayals from the Dark Age have permeated through time though, and the Heroes of the past whilst powerful once Awakened to their full potential, have caused many conflicts, betrayals and rebellions through time.

You are all Heroes from the Dark Ages not yet awakened to your full potential or aware of your past mistakes and schemes. For now you belong to the Society of the Betterment of Humanity, which given your past deeds would make your Awakened self laugh. You are unaware that many other Heroes you have known from the past are also in the Society.

What will you do when now and when you awaken to your full potential?

And what great schemes are going on in the background and just who is betraying who here?

Take a Bow - Lyrics by Muse

You corrupt
And bring corruption to all that you touch

You'll behold
And beholden for all that you've done

Cast a spell
Cast a spell on the country you run

And risk
You will risk
You will risk all their lives and their souls

And burn
You will burn
You will burn in hell
Yeah, you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell for your sins

Oh, our freedom's consuming itself
What we've become
Is contrary to what we want
Take a bow

You bring death
And destruction to all that you touch

You must pay
You must pay for your crimes against the earth

Feed the hex
Feed the hex on the country you love

And beg
You will beg
You will beg for their lives and their souls

Yeah, and burn
You will burn
You will burn in hell
Yeah, you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell
Yeah, you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell for your sins
